On 218 visits to the plate, he looked out at the shift; when he hit a grounder or short line drive (GSL), he batted .191. 

On 30 occasions he came to the plate without seeing a shift; his No Shift GSL (in the lingo of The Bill James Handbook), was .800.

The Mariners team saw 953 shifts this year. At that rate in a full season they would have faced 2,573.

In 2019 they faced 1,601.

Kyle Seager (3B) SEA - Apr. 10

https://www.rotowire.com/baseball/player.php?id=740651

Hitting coach Tim Laker feels Seager was able to successfully carry over the hitting adjustments he made during the second half of the 2019 season into spring training, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports.

ROTOWIRE RECOMMENDS: Seager's final .239/.321/.468 line for 2019 still had plenty of room for improvement, but it was markedly better than what the veteran third baseman was on pace for during a forgettable first half (.203/.288/.371). Seager slashed a solid .260/.339/.524 over the post-All-Star-break portion of the campaign, a stretch during which he also slugged 17 of his 23 home runs and drove in 45 of his 63 runs.

The low BABIP is partly explained by the fact that he doesn't strike out all that often. But when you have a low BABIP year after year after year...

The big drop in doubles -- no explanation for that.

The big jump in HR/FB? Everyone did that

He'll be cheap and he could surprise.
